  • Our daughter 11, likes ghosts etc. We took our 11,13 year old to this monestary to really see something that really is hard to describe. Creepy doesn't cover it... So worth the time!  more »

  • One of the coolest things I've ever seen. The place is literally made out of skeletons. The design and architecture are breathtaking. Not for the faint of heart!
  • The museum and crypt were possibly one of the most interesting and unique things me and my partner saw in Rome on our trip. The museum was tastefully done and provided a more in depth understanding and appreciation of the Capuchin monk culture and history. A must see!
  • Lovely little museum and crypts. Wouldn't have found it if someone hadn't recommended a visit. The Crypts with the bones was eerily mesmerising. Go and visit.
  • Placed at the beginning of Via Veneto, it is the church built by Antonio Barberini .very austere outside, inside is full of really beautiful paintings ... Interestingly the monastery museum of the Capuchin Friars
  • The crypt is why you want to visit. The underground cells feature macabre decorations of human bones (of deceased Capuchin monks), like the strangest primitive art display ever. Nathaniel Hawthorne in 1860 found the exhibit soul-depressing, but the monks' point is to teach us that death is natural and not to be feared. "You are what we were. We are what you will become," the bones tell us. Shouldn't miss this when you are in Rome.
